    "Have you seen any pictures of 6, 7, etc. months old fetuses with anencephaly, encephalocele, hydrocephalus, omphalocele, etc. etc. etc.? How "human" do you think they look?

    I researched this though, the state of Kansas kept records. The majority were not for ilnesses or deformities like that.

    •  Well, when you lump them ALL together (0+ / 0-)

      EVERY abortion, EVERYWHERE in Kansas, at ANY time in a pregnancy from ~4 weeks on up, maybe you get up to 60,000. Maybe.

      But that's not the way the statistics are being (mis)used.

      O'Really and the other lying liars on the wingnut right have been trying to blame Dr Tiller specifically for all 60,000 and deceptively attributing them ALL to "late-term". They don't CARE that the math doesn't add up.

      There used to be an old saying, "Lies, damn lies, and statistics". You might want to think about that.

        No, I think that was for Dr. Tiller alone.

        "O'Really and the other lying liars on the wingnut right have been trying to blame Dr Tiller specifically for all 60,000 and deceptively attributing them ALL to "late-term". They don't CARE that the math doesn't add up."
        I know they're not all late term. A lot of them were though. You can check the math yourself, I believe the state of Kansas kept at least some records.

        Oh, and I'm not getting this from O'reilly etc, I've used state of Kansas records. I can't remeber the last time I watched O'reilly for even a minute.

        Your posts against me however are starting to sound similiar to what he says. Just substitute "liberal" for "wingnut"
